How to Switch from Squarespace to Libsyn Podcast Hosting
Considering changing podcast platforms? Excited to see how Libsyn’s reliability and exclusive features can take your podcast to the next level?
Not sure if you want to deal with the hassle of switching podcast platforms? Here’s some good news…It’s easier than you think—easy as 1-2-3.
Step 2: Import Your Show
Now that your account is ready, it’s time to bring the show files over to Libsyn. (Don’t worry…We do all the heavy lifting.)
Get started by going to the Settings section.
Click on Feed & Sync Import.
Once the window pops up, select One Time Import.
Type in your current Squarespace RSS feed URL.
Depending on how many files your podcast has and how large they are, this may take a bit. Go for a walk or start planning your next batch of podcast content. We will let you know when the import is complete. Need more details? Visit our guide to moving a podcast from Squarespace to Libsyn.
Step 3: Redirect Your Podcast RSS Feed
People enjoy your podcast. They want to know when new episodes come out (and listen to your old ones). It’s time to make sure Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and all your other digital distribution platforms can find your new podcast host.
Your podcast RSS feed connects your content to these services that alert your subscribers when new episodes come out. Redirecting the RSS feed makes your move to Libsyn seamless.
How to Redirect a Squarespace RSS Feed
In the Home Menu click Pages.
Hover over your podcasting blog page title. Click the little Gear Icon ( ⛭ ) next to the title.
Click on the Feeds tab.
Scroll down and click Change Feed.
Select Moving from Squarespace.
Enter your new Libsyn RSS feed URL in the New RSS Feed URL field.
Your podcast RSS feed is now redirected.
Squarespace recommends keeping your account open for at least another 4 weeks to ensure the services distributing your podcast update to your new URL. Still have questions? Visit Squarespace’s knowledge base.
